United States President Barack Obama pretends to be trapped in
Spider-Man's web as he greets Nicholas Tamarin, aged three, in the
doorway between the Oval Office and his secretary's office. Spider-Man
had been trick-or-treating for an early Halloween with his father, White
House aide Nate Tamarin, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
President Obama declared this photograph his favourite picture of 2012
when he saw it hanging in the West Wing a couple of weeks later.
